The national demand to boycott Chinese goods in the face of the Ladakh incident is becoming louder, while the Center is being urged by traders to direct e-commerce companies to restrict the sale of Chinese goods that import products worth US$ 74 billion annually to India.

The national trading agency said, of total imports from China, retail traders sell goods worth approximately USD 17 trillion which include, toys, household items, cell phones, electronic and cosmetic goods, and other products which could be replaced by Indian products.

V K Bansal, the association’s general secretary, told PTI that they are advising their members not to place new orders and clear their inventory of Chinese products. They also call upon the government to limit the sale of Chinese products by e-commerce companies.

The President of the West Bengal Traders Association Confederation Sushil Poddar said his members were advised as much as possible to avoid trade in Chinese goods.

Another body of traders, the Confederation of All Indi Traders (CAIT), decided under its campaign “Bhartiya Samaan-Hamara Abhimaan,” to intensify its movement against the boycott of Chinese goods.

It has published a list of more than 450 large commodity categories, comprising three thousand Chinese products.

CAIT also wrote an open letter to various celebrities requesting that they stop endorsing China-made products.
